Loving Life after 50

Gaining Instagram Followers Part Deux ( 2) and an Outfit

Holy toledo Batman it really works,  seriously I have gained 69 followers on instagram in one week. I know right, how fantabulous is that, and I am sure it is entirely thanks to posting pictures of donuts, and peonies and gold glitter, and of course me not eating… or maybe not……….. cuz now that i think about it I didn’t actually post any of those things, OK This week my feed will be filled with gold glitter, peonies and not eating photos I promise. ( just in case you missed last weeks post and are totally lost.)
Last week was filled with a ferocious cat, and an empty steak plate, some Quidittch Rings,  a campfire and a whole lot of outfits, its a totally new formula to try.  Take a quick pic so staging peeps, post with no filter and hope you thrill a few peeps, that works too right.

Ok maybe 69 is not a big huge number in the blogging world but it works for me, for now……

OK I know move off the topic Linda,  time to get serious and talk about stuff people really care about… hmm Okay stumped today. Not really I have a thousand ideas running through my head I am just trying to figure out what to do and how to incorporate my ideas into my blog, I want to do a Canadian Pictorial for all of you non Canadians,  i realize I have been to every Province and One Territory so I would like to show you how picturesque Canada really is, and then I can start my US States because I think I am on 26, so I am getting there right, or maybe some glimpses of mexico and Cuba…. yea I am going to replace my Cookie series with a travel series for the next while.  If you have been following me on the weekends you know I post a cookie recipe every Saturday, well starting this week i am heading into a bit of a travel series for you, and then…. wait for it,  Music Festival season starts so….. I have to start sharing that with you right.

I am excited about the possibilities and I hope that you are excited by all that can be and will be over the next while, so while most of the bloggers are taking a much deserved break I hope you will come play with me and get hooked.

So quick weekend recap,  pizza and beer and hockey Friday, Gardening, swimming and steaks ( and wine) on Saturday, Pool Party/Festival meeting and more swimming and hockey last night and damn it all weekend is over and I am back to work.  Back to work with yet another new outfit though so that makes life totally worth it.During my Florida shopping spree, I mean vacation, I picked up this beautiful Maxi at J Crew,  fits like a dream and is the perfect lengthy,  lord I love that store, This baby was in the clearance section and then another 40% off how insane that it cost me less than $20.00,  sandals from Target ( on sale 10.00) and the sweater is a Vanheusen steal ( Old).  Coach Clutch and Forever 21 Sunglasses and I am set for this 34 degree day (93 F).

Happy Monday Folks.
